Pneumofore Provides Pipeline Drying with Vacuum System for the Gorgon Gas Project
After more than 30 years of exploration, the important project regarding the ‘Greater Gorgon’ group of gas fields, about 200km from the north-west coast of Western Australia, has finally started. The considerable length of large-diameter gas pipelines will require commissioning, part of which is the drying.
A fleet of Pneumofore vacuum systems is on the spot to take advantage of the tested and proven vacuum drying technique. The double-stage vacuum systems have been previously operated in the United Arab Emirates, later in India, with impressive results of short drying times. Here, where the gas is worth several hundred billions of Australian dollars, time is particularly short to finally gain profit after huge investments.
This is how Pneumofore equipment enters the game, because the easy handling, small footprint, and efficient and durable operation of this vacuum system allow fast and simple drying operations.
